Generative AI is artificial intelligence capable of generating text, images and other media using generative models.
Three of four CEOs surveyed by IBM's Institute for Business this year said their competitive advantage rested on generative AI.
Also, companies at the forefront of generative AI adoption and data-led innovation are already reporting 72-percent greater annual net profits and 17-percent more annual revenue growth than their peers.
"Artificial intelligence is an opportunity of a lifetime for the next generation, and Poland is just, I think, touching the tip of the iceberg in terms of its potential, in terms of tech engineering," the US ambassador, Mark Brzezinski, told Radio Poland's Danuta Isler.
The meeting included a presentation of Watsonx, IBM's AI and data platform built for business and released earlier this year, as well as discussions about ways of regulating the use of AI data and the risks artificial intelligence poses globally.
"We don't want the AI space to be the Wild West, but we also don't want it to be overregulated," Brzezinski said.

The European Union on Wednesday held talks to finalize an agreement on a set of rules to regulate artificial intelligence. If adopted, these rules will be the world's first AI law.
US President Joe Biden at the end of October issued an executive order to regulate AI in a bid to mitigate the risks it poses to society, especially when it comes to privacy and data protection.
